The “no white after Labor Day” rule was likely conceived shortly before the turn of the 20th century, but some still consider post-summer white a fashion faux pas. We don’t know about you, but we love breaking the rules, especially when it comes to shaking things up in chic LWDs. Coco Chanel famously wore white all year long, and we can’t argue with her style choices, now can we?
White dresses aren’t just for brides and beach babes anymore… Today’s LWDs are totally wearable for any occasion and season. So, in true Coco fashion, we’ve styled three swoon-worthy white looks that you can wear before and after Labor Day, hopefully without an ounce of judgement.

Day-To-Night White Delight
All-white is chic and sophisticated – perfect for a day at the races, a garden party, or a celebratory dinner. An off-shoulder mini in sweet floral lace makes the perfect base, while strappy sandals and a classic quilted bag up the elegance factor. Got a party-packed day ahead? No prob! Plan on a colorblock sun hat for day and a string of faux pearls for evening… You’re good to go!
White Hot Lunch Date
For a lunch date with the BFF or bae, swap your favorite white tee and jeans for a cool, crisp T-shirt dress. Transform this basic LWD into a jaw-dropping day look by tying on a trendy neck scarf for a bit of feminine edge. Nude gladiator heels and a cute clutch fancy up this simple white frock, while trendy sunnies add a touch of laid-back glam.
Girls’ Night Dressed In White
On your next #GNO, stand out from your squad in their oh-so-basic LBDs by rocking a curve-hugging LWD with sexy sheer details. The key to this white haute look is the pop of color – a bright pink quilted wristlet stores your clubbing essentials (ID, credit card, cell phone, and lipgloss) while contrasting beautifully against the luminous white dress and glimmering silver accessories.
